UK band, Nothing But Thieves originated while lead singer Conor Mason met Joe Langridge-Brown while attending school in Essex. The group filled out when guitarist/keyboardist Dominic Craik met Mason at college a few years later and brought his older cousin Phil Blake in on bass and drummer James Price from one of their early support bands.
In search of inspiration, the band embarked on a self-funded trip to the U.S. in late 2012 where their managers hooked them up with producers in LA, Nashville and New York. The guys came back inspired and with a batch of material that would provide the foundation for their debut album.
Nothing But Thieves continue to garner critical acclaim as they continue their current U.S. tour that will include a festival appearance at BottleRock in Napa Valley.
